Europe is warming faster than the rest of the world and scientists are puzzled

The conclusions of the COP26 summit, however, offer some hope. More than 100 nations have committed to reduce emissions of methane, which is 80 times more warming than carbon dioxide, by 30% by the end of this decade. About 140 states pledged to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. The question is, whether the action is coming fast enough.

“If we do nothing, in Europe, every year 15 million people will be at risk of forest fires, 90,000 people per year will die due to heatwaves, 2 million people will be affected by coastal and riverine floods, droughts will expand and tundra will disappear to the point of nothing,” Thiemig said.
